|KG518||C. elegans||acy-1(ce2) III. Show Description
About normal size and distribution on food. Hyperactive locomotion. Hypersensitive to stimuli. Most mature adults have slight vulval bump. Not obviously Egl-d or Egl-c. Dominant, gain-of-function allele. Mutation is P260S. Sequence in WT: CAGTCTGTGATG C CT. Sequence in ce2: CAGTCTGTGATG T CT.
|KG744||C. elegans||pde-4(ce268) II. Show Description
Hyperactive locomotion and hypersensitive to stimuli such as plate dropping. Restores wild type levels of locomotion to paralyzed ric-8(md303) mutants. Most, but not all adults, appear significantly Egl-c. Some mature adults are thinner than normal. Aldicarb sensitivity, growth rate, pumping, length, and distribution on food are all similar to wild type. The ce268 mutation is a D448N change relative to PDE-4D isoform. It disrupts the catalytic domain by changing one of the four active site residues that together chelate an active site zinc atom. Inheritance is semi-dominant due to dominant negative side effects.
